To celebrate Women’s History month, MAP is inviting three young South Asian artists to take over our Instagram in March. The first takeover features the incredible Vidya Patel – a dance artist, choreographer and performer. She will be joining us from Birmingham, UK to share snippets from a day in her life!
Do join us at the end of the month (30th March, 7 pm IST) for a roundtable discussion between the three artists who work across painting, sketching, poetry and dance. The conversation will be sure to enlighten all with the artists discussing their multifaceted experiences of being women, and gender queer, how their creative work takes shape, and the care and tenderness with which they chart their lived experiences through their work.
This event will not have Indian Sign Language interpretation. However, if you’d like to avail the conversation with interpretation, write to us prior to the event at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a DM here.
